Question about 2000 Honda Civic
When you smelt fuel, It was flooded. Your best bet would be to replace the spark plugs. Gas will foul them out, just like oil.

SOURCE: Hi,I have a 91 honda
this was a problem with my 91 accord as well. it would irritate me to no end because one minute she would start and the next she wouldnt....i did notice that she would have a lot more trouble starting if it was a hot day or if i left her out in the sun for long periods. anyeays, the mechanics at the shop said this was a common problem with this model car due to a malfunctioning chip that does not tolerate heat very well..... luckily they were right and i was in and out of the shop in no time.

if the fuel pressure is low its the fuel pump. hence the slow start. is it the fan that not blowing check the switch for bad contacts

hello, honda has a problem with the key switch shorting out. mostly becuase there is to much weight on the key ring. the electrical part of the switch looses contact in run mode. replace the ingtion switch electrical part. this should solve the problem

There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.
Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.
And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.
Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.
Your gas cap on tightly?
Good luck with your problem.
